View Full Version : Play other internet radio stations than those in shoutcast, radioio, ...

Hi

I just bought the SB2 and I already couldn't live without it. I initially bought it for my CD collection (that I already ripped) but I see now that I am equally (and perhaps more) using it as a radio, thanks to the possibilities in the SB2 to connect to Shoutcast, RadioIO, Podcasts, ... Because our local radio stations (I'm living in Belgium) generally suck.

Well, they don't all suck, and that is the subject of this question. I'd still like to play some of them - and they are accessible via the web, for example via this URL:

http://internetradio.vrt.be/dab/hoeluisteren/pc/help/gebruiksvoorwaarden/stream_21.m3U

When I download that via wget, I get a file with three lines in it:

http://mp3.streampower.be/ra2ant-mid.mp3
http://mp3.streampower.be/ra2ant-low.mp3
http://mp3.streampower.be/ra2ant-high.mp3

Can I put this in somewhere in the configuration in the server?

Thanks for your time

Mark

I think (and I may be wrong) that if you create a playlist (i.e. m3u file) with the URL in it, and throw that in your music directory, it should play it.

try pasting the m3u url into the "tune in now" field under Help->technical
information->internet radio.

Open the "Internet Radio" page from the help section. There's a "tune in"
field where you can paste that url.

thank you - that worked.

I am amazed - about the Squeezebox, about its features and the speed of answer in this forum.
